I made this toolbox for my youngest child's first day of school this year.  I included a few items for him to add to his backpack/lunchbox and of course, pencils in his favorite pattern of camouflage!

Here's the recipe:

  • Toolbox- cut at 9.25" with Cricut cart Sweet Tooth Boxes in red/black cardstock
  • RYAN- cut at 2" with Cricut cart Nate's ABC's in black with white ink stitching
  • Bus- cut at 2" with Cricut cart Nate's ABC's in yellow/black/white/green (all scrap pieces) and stamped in cooper/silver ink
  • School Days- cut at 1" with Cricut cart Nate's ABC's in green
  • Stars- cut at 1/2, 3/4, and 1" with Cricut cart George & Basic Shapes in yellow with black ink stitching
For My Pink Stamper's blog hop submission:  This project meets my simple style of something creative to serve a practical purpose.  I just love cute gift packages...I know he's going to be really surprised!

I'm also entering this project into the Back to School blog hop at Cards by Jovan and ABUSYBEE for Creative Cutter Room.
